S. Korea to raise reward money for reporting spies, spy ships
SEOUL, Aug. 6 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will sharply raise the amount of money given to people who report spies and spy ships as part of its efforts to raise peoples' awareness toward national security threats, the government said Saturday.

The Ministry of Justice said a preannouncement of legislation has been made that will revise current rules regarding rewards so a maximum 500 million won (US$467,700) can be given for information on spies, and 750 million won for people who report spy ships.
